I am dedicating August to catching up on my scrapbooking — using both digital and traditional methods. I started and finished our Disney World trip book tonight, and it made me so happy and sentimental to look through the pictures of Carson’s first vacation. The best part of traveling with kids are the adorable pics that you can look at for years to come!
Do you scrapbook? I love and hate the medium. A few years ago, I gave up on filling in photo albums, as they take up so much darn space. I’ve started making family yearbooks and am also making ones for really special vacations and notable milestones (like one of Carson’s first year). I am working on more traditional scrapbooks for the kids’ baby books as well as for their art projects, certificates of achievement, etc. Those just take so much time to execute and require more physical space than a laptop.
But while it’s a bit of a pain to engage in this family memory keeping, I am determined to keep it up. There’s nothing better than looking through a nicely assembled (and well edited) memory book.
